Welcome, Class of 2025!

The University, ‘Beacon o’er our western land’ (as ‘Alma Mater’ describes), shines especially bright during Welcome Weekend 2021 

Welcome to the UND family.

During Welcome Weekend, Aug. 21-23, activities were designed to help new UND students feel at home on campus. UND offered students the essential information needed to make a successful transition to university life; plus, UND student ambassadors led new students in exploring the University.

Students attending Welcome Weekend received information about classes, faculty and the UND campus, got the chance to meet other new students at UND, were able to ask questions of current students, learned more about the campus and the Greater Grand Forks community, and had fun.

Throughout Welcome Weekend, UND photographers were on scene, recording the moments as new students received an informal but informative introduction to college life. Those moments include the Class Photo shown below, which was taken in front of the Chester Fritz Library.

Below is a selection of other photos from Welcome Weekend 2021. Enjoy!
